As a younger physiotherapist, I don’t think I ever consciously paid attention to the psychological aspect or power of my job. By that I mean, I didn’t read any research around it – it all seemed a bit wishy-washy and non-tangible. But quickly you realise thata verbal cue that just clicks with one patient turns intoa complex dance choreography with another.. “No, I just wanted you to bend you knee.. why are you doing the worm?”
I’ve talked before about the clinical reasoning behind exercise progression and regression and in doing so, I skimmed the surface of the addition of intrinsic & extrinsic stimuli. So now I want to build on the concepts of motor learning to underpin that exercise progression.
